Ben Watt – Hendra

Universal, 2014

Formerly half of Everything But The Girl, Watt goes back to his folk-rock roots armed with a guitar, occasional synth and his gentle voice. It’s a quiet affair, full of intimacy, and though the guitars will get crunchy and blues influenced, it always comes back to his sparse and emotive singing. It’s a far cry from his former band or work as a DJ, but the life stories expressed here unfold with a stark beauty that’s so immediately memorable.
